In Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, we travel to 1920s Shanghai to reveal the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing (future shop owner, Mr. Wing in the 1984 film) met young Mogwai called Gizmo. Along with a teenage street thief named Elle, Sam and Gizmo embark on a journey through the Chinese countryside, encountering and sometimes battling colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. In their quest to return Gizmo to his family and uncover a legendary treasure, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.

The series is produced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register, Chairman, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, and Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, presidents of Amblin Television, are executive producers. Tze Chun serves as showrunner and executive producer. Brendan Hay is executive producer and Dan Krall is supervising producer.
